With Maccabi Tel Aviv and Hapoel Jerusalem already looking like they have wrapped up the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds, the battle for third place in the BSL standings took center stage on Monday, with Hapoel Holon beating Hapoel Tel Aviv 82-70.

Holon improved to 13-9 and leapfrogged into third position, bouncing back from its 30-point drubbing at the hands of Hapoel Jerusalem last week. Tel Aviv dropped to its third loss in the past four games, falling to 12-10 and giving coach Oded Katash plenty to mull over.

After three tight quarters, Holon took a four-point gap (59- 55) into the final 10 minutes, before slowly but surely increasing the margin.

Dominic McGuire led Holon with 23 points and six rebounds, with Jordan Taylor adding 19 points and nine assists.

“I tried to come out and do everything for my team,” said McGuire. “We have a great team. We are real close and it shows on the court. We were coming off two losses and were tied with Hapoel so it was very big for us to come out and get the win and gain some momentum.”
